PITTSBURGH (AP) — The former executive director of a western Pennsylvania regional education service agency has been scheduled to plead guilty to federal charges that she used her work credit card to buy things for herself.
Federal prosecutors in Pittsburgh contend 56-year-old Cecelia Yauger, of Grove City, made $73,000 in questionable purchases, including at restaurants, pharmacies, department stores and retail outlets.
Yauger resigned in April 2013 from the Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV, which serves several school districts.
Yauger's attorney has previously said she'll be able to show that some of the purchases were related to work. He did not immediately return a call for comment Wednesday, hours before Yauger was scheduled to change her not guilty plea before Chief U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti.
Yauger is charged with stealing from a program receiving federal funds.
